It's all over bar the shouting. Another Christmas for the scrapbook. Only we don't have scrapbooks any more. Far too old fashioned, too primitive for todays children. Everything is so sophisticated, so technical nowadays. Which indirectly is why this blog is so late.
I've been doing this blog for over six years. I need this to keep what's left of my brain active. (Companies like Blogger don't help when they change their systems periodical. Its the way of the world I'm afraid.) I've made many friends, seen many changes, unfortunately seen many well known bloggers pass on to wherever bloggers pass on to. Nothing in life stands still, change is inevitable. If all this suggests I no longer wish to blog, not true. At the same time I wish to try new things before I 'curl up' so to speak, never to uncurl again. With all this in mind I have been frantically trying to learn how to use UTube, My efforts are crude, amateurish, embarrassing, but they are MY efforts. I hope some of you will find me on UTube. I have done three short pieces to date. Surely they can only get better. You can find me, hopefully on Grumpy Old Ken.
